      English isn’t that complicated, you know. To master subject and verb agreement does not require a degree in law. LOL

    WOW? Out of so many takers only a handful made it? What does it mean – that of many Filipinos not meeting the standards at the very least? Stated differently – ganun kadami ang obob sa atin?

        Do you think after all their hard work and still not making the grade, will one these think of committing suicide? The COED who just did committed suicide because she cannot come up with the tuition. These bar takers paid all their tuition fees plus many more and yet – they failed?

    It seems to me that the majority of people taking the bar exam are not prepared for the exam? 80% failed, that’s a high %. Either students are entering Law school unadvisedly or when they get there they are not working hard enough and spend too much time in fraternity pursuits spanking one another’s bottoms? Congrats to the top three [66% being women] but that’s not a surprise, I do believe that in PH 75% of all Doctorates are actually awarded to women? Having said that, had all 5600 passed the bar, what would they all do? Do we need that many lawyers every year?

    • topolcats

      A total of 949 out of 5,686 examinees passed the 2012 bar examination?
      Given the low low world standards of Universities in the Philippines, example UP, touted as the country’s leading university, dropped to 332nd place from its 2010 ranking of 314th, while AdMU fell to 360 from 307 and DLSU went down from the 451-500 bracket to the 551-600 bracket.
      How is it possible for so many to fail?

      In my country cab drivers have law degrees and a bachelor of law is pretty well the entry standard of tertiary education, replacing a bachelor of arts as entry level. I would have thought a trained parrot in our country could pass a law degree? Perhaps not? But a lot of law graduates both male and female are less intelligent than parrots, but do have good memory skills like parrots. LOL

      So these Ph results are saying something very serious about Philippine society today and where it is headed?

      I think what is more interesting are medical graduates?
      In certain levels in my country, such as being a registrar in a Good Hospital (we have bad hospitals as well). In order to be a registrar you need the head surgeon in that department approving you, your university backing /approving you and the hospital board approving you.
      Thus only the best doctors will be allowed to practice in the best hospitals.
      I wonder how the Philippine medical system does it….? Probably by paying bribes and connections?

      • marienkind

        You do understand that Law doesn’t figure in well in the R&D-specific world rankings that you just mentioned right? Or did you just look at the rankings without reading how theyre computed and said “BAH POOR STANDARDS RANT RANT RANT”? You’re the perfect example of somebody who knows nothing but complain and I’m thankful you’re no longer part of us. Good riddance.

      • topolcats

        It was ranked and collated by by London-based education and career organization, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). The statistic given came from the Manila times Written by Joel M. Sy Egco, Assignments Editor on the 17th of March 2013…….. Go and complain to him.

        So much has been written by me for contemplation and rebuttal and all I get from you are personal attacks without a hint of substance.
        God your stupid!

        What ever law you practice in the Philippines?, seems to me?, might well be slightly better or equal to that taught and practised in the Congo?, One assumes at least by your woeful pass rate?
        LOL

      • Cano Manuel

        And that is from someone who seems to have come from Maldives. LOL

      • topolcats

        Assumptions, specially wild ignorant ones are best given merit and evidence at least using the test “balance of probabilities” before being stated as hearsay.
        Otherwise anyone will assume that the blogger was badly educated in the Philippines!

      • Cano Manuel

        It seems to that the blogger had a trouble past.

      • topolcats

        If you mean yourself?
        I agree!

      • marienkind

        Can I also point out that your grammar is atrocious to boot? But then again, with you living in another country, you probably know that already.

        Going back to what I said, point is, QS rankings focus on STEM courses, not Law. Try to read up on its inner workings. It’s quite informative. Be warned, however, that most articles are written in proper English. You probably didn’t yet and I won’t wait for you to do so. To directly correlate a drop in those rankings to a drop in law education is not only misinformed, it’s quite asinine too.

        Listen, if you feel the need to take pride in whatever country you’ve managed to sneak yourself into, that means you nothing better to take pride of. It’s that simple really.

      • topolcats

        The subject is not about ESL or grammar.
        It is about law graduates the PH failing in mass!

      • eigendik

        … you mean “en masse” … “in mass” is ridiculously dumb … but expected from a multi-passport individual…

      • marienkind

        Apparently that’s not the only thing failing nowadays. Hahaha

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GDLJBVQKYUSWJAK6ICQITGFTUU Toni

        I wonder what your country is. Since your cab drivers have law degrees, why are they not practicing their profession and they choose to drive a cab? that shows they are dumb… and the university in your country is probably handing out university degrees left and right without recourse.
        As to our medical course, I have met some of my students from UP and they are now doctors who occupy high positions in US hospitals and some in pharmaceutical companies doing R&D.
        On the contrary, I have met some so called professionals who know nothing about the job – must be from your country because they used to be cab drivers.

      • ReneV

        topolcats said it himself. his country’s cab drivers have law degrees then goes to write against the Philippines’ bar failure rate. he points to one country but does not realize that his other fingers point back to him and his country. i wonder where he came from?

      • topolcats

        Its about jobs stupid!
        Or the lack of them!

      • ReneV

        what county do you come from and what passports do you have? m just curious of your very superior attitude.

      • topolcats

        Its none of your MotherFFF business scum!
        Stick to the topic you turd!

      • ReneV

        then why you had so many passports? what is that reason for your claim? what country did you come from and what passports do you claim to have?

      • topolcats

        Well, I suggest it is none of your business and now stick it up your rectum!
        Is my answer clear enough for even an imbecile like you to understand?

      • ReneV

        so do not claim to have so many passports as you proudly claimed to have!

      • topolcats

        GO AWAY FOOL!

      • topolcats

        Australia is one………but since, I have a number of passports you can take your pick from many country’s in the world where University education is free as a right to get your statistics.

        Its not matter of being dumb, your comments…. shows you are dumb for making a comment like that without even knowing the country or employments statistic in any country which in fact is the operative word….ability to get gainful employment.
        A law degree in Australia is about 4 years and 6 months full time or you can get an SAB. University degrees are a right for all mankind and should be free as it is in many country’s should be or subsidised like in Australia.

        The ability to make money in law in Australia is not simply having a degree in law, but the contacts you must have.
        Year after year Australian law students are turned out by the thousands with no jobs to be had…….. which shows your complete ignorance when you say Lawyers who drive taxis are dumb……..hey dumbo there are no JOBS to be had!………Duh.
        What are you going to do to survive?

      • eigendik

        Topolcats, your dumb comments reek of ignorance. A uni degree is a privilege and not a right – that is why there are grade-12 leaver exams like the A-level exams in UK, or SAT in USA , the VCE in Victoria, etc. If one does not do well in the exams, he cannot get into university. And I do not know of ‘many countries’, as you stated, where university is free.

        Furthermore, in the Philippines, just like in the USA, Law and Medicine are post graduate courses, unlike in the British system -where Aussie education system is patterned. Hence your comment that “law is pretty well the entry standard of tertiary education” is irrelevant as you are comparing two different systems.

        Australia does NOT have a Bar exam. Aussies that I talked too about Bar exams think it is a beer drinking contest. In your country, any graduate of Law can practice law. Your cab drivers are not lawyers in the truest sense. Here, one has to pass the Bar exams before one can practice law. The low passing rate in the Bar exams ensures that we do not have too many lawyers and enough taxi drivers.

        If thousands of so called law graduates are churned out by the diploma mills every year without a job, then THAT is dumb. Anyone who would study for years knowing there is no job in the future is dumb. If jobs are obtained through connections rather than meritocracy, then that breeds incompetence, don’t you think? At least, you are lucky that you were able to use your connections to land a job here in the Philippines.

      • topolcats

        You reek of ignorance and this is why!
        The system you have mentioned is now obsolete! You can buy yourself into university and there is also mature age entry.
        If you have the money anything is possible in Australia…dumbo!…….you have been asleep for at least a decade and a half.

        You might think having a university degree is privilege?
        But Argentina, Uruguay,Cuba, Russia, Scotland and many other country’s in Europe consider its a right as well.

        The UN International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of 1966 declares, in Article 13, that “higher education shall be made equally accessible to all, on the basis of capacity, by every appropriate means, and in particular by the progressive introduction of free education”.
        In Europe, Article 2 of the First Protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights, adopted in 1950, obliges all signatory parties to guarantee the right to education.

        Australia legal courses do have exam’s obviously, both open book oral and written are you saying you study law and there are no exams at all in Australia?

        You said: any graduate of Law can practice law. Your cab drivers are not lawyers in the truest sense. Here, one has to pass the Bar exams before one can practice law.

        To show your complete ignorance…you can’t be called a solicitor or barrister without “a practising certificate” and that’s after you pass the 6 month further study at the college of law, after you pass your 4 years and you must do further study yearly to qualify for a renewal of a practicing certificate.
        Incidentals a practising certificate costs a LOT of money yearly.

        To further show your “ABSOLUTE IGNORANCE”… AUSTRALIA has two sets of legal fraternity’s……one is the law society which deals with solicitors, and the other the BAR which deals with Barristers.
        Both are completely separate jurisdictions you dickhead!
        You can choose after passing a LLB in law/4 years and after six months at the college of law to become a barrister or solicitor.
        Its up to you?……….You cannot be both.

        Please do not talk, if you have no knowledge of either the structure of the legal fraternity here or the employment situation in any country. I suggest you!!….. dumb Filipino asswipe!!. you get your facts straight before making stupid comments!

        So education is not a right but a privilege – if you do not have the money, you cannot but your way. You are contradicting yourself wanker. And stop spreading lies about Australia just to prove your mediocrity – i believe you are less than mediocre.

        It seems you have comprehension problems. Perhaps you did not take your sedatives and ADHD medications gain. I said that you are comparing two different systems – and that is what you just confirmed wankee.

        You are so angry… are you on drugs… hoot hoot…perhaps I touched on something sensitive and painful… be careful … avoid road rage when driving your cab.

        Do not people who work for pharmaceutical companies in R&D disciplined in the areas of Pharmacy, Chemistry Biology and Genetics maybe rather than just General medicine? These students of yours, who hold high positions in US hospitals, [by your admission US hospitals being better than PH ones- and probably are] did their learning solely come from PH medical institutions of learning or did they go on into the US system and add to their basic knowledge?

      • buttones

        A low passing rate at a low world ranked university, [the second worst result in the history of RP] I guess is how you are summarizing it. Put like that it’s an awful indictment of the whole education system isn’t it. The professors who teach Law are actually products of this system as well so what to expect? It was the sheer size of the failure rate that astonished me- over 80%, not only did the students fail but the professors did as well.

        I remember when the last rankings were released and the Dept of Ed dismissed them as not meaning much at all- had UP come in at number 100 in the world it would have been a different story of course- that goes without saying.

        We are the 12th largest country in the world by population and we cannot get one single university under the 300 level? The UK have 60% of our population, why I wonder are ALL their universities in the top 300 and many in the top 50!

        I did not attend PH university, for one reason or another I ended up in UK and Canada, and the thing I found interesting was many of us were foreign students, just how many foreign students graduate from UP? That’s a good measure of a good university as well. Many a high roller here will send his kid to Oxbridge or the Ivy League, if they can make the entrance exam- why? Simply because the standard of education in PH is ’not very good’ .

        My country is littered with BA’s , I think the whole thing has become debased, many are not worth the paper they are written on.

        The medical profession? I’m not to sure how that works in PH- The only thing I know is when I go to my dentist he proudly shows his certificates on the wall- ALL- with no exceptions are from American Colleges….Odd no?

      • topolcats

        I thought in the first instance, I was writing to a Filipino who was not part of the dumbed down inarticulate brainwashed masses in Manila.
        (I was right) whose’s insecurity would have them defend Satan if Satan was pro Filipino. Nice to meet you mi carina!

        You have made a very good point indeed,.. the level of professional teaching in lowly ranked Ph university’s is atrocious!
        One look at the legal comments of Roque from UP a purported legal intellect from the Ph? Shows why the Philippines is hiring at a millions of dollars a month an American to defend the Ph case in the lower courts of the Arbitral tribunal in the UN in respect to China. It is almost unheard that a sovereign country would hire a lead US counsel from another country to litigate a case before the UN.
        Even Ghana v Argentina in the law of the sea tribunal hired local counsel to defend the case of the Libertad in the UN. But as we all know the Philippines is an obvious blatant Satrapy of the US.
        So blatantly obvious that it has no LOCAL legal minds worthy of defending the litigation before the UN Arbitral tribunal ON ITS OWN, IT MUST BUY US BRAINS LOL .

        I did make a point about cab drivers in Australia having a law degree but it is even worse in Scandinavia. Its about jobs and connections, Australia/Scandinavia has limited crimes….so ambulance chasing has a limited legal audience.

        Yes your right as well what is a BA worth in Canada or Australia?
        perhaps a level entry job in the public service?

        The medical profession? Here in Australia in respect to dentistry it is all about connections…….Gap or No Gap? that depends on your relationship with the dentist?

        One final question Ms Buttons?
        Why are they showing the faces of people who have passed the law exam on the site?………what exactly, but a journey in bad taste are they advertising?
        Whom passed and who failed is a private matter!
        Faces and names of people who have passed….it shows elitism ! Completely bizarre and absurd from a Canadian/Australian…… fairness approach.

      • buttones

        During the course of this discussion, it might be fair to assume you and I are in for some ‘flack’ – so get your jacket on.. I’m not from Imperial Manila, I’m just an island girl-. There is a tendency, with regard to attacks on our education system, or adverse comment if you will, for people to defend the indefensible. Pride is an element in this, misplaced but nonetheless it is there. Objectivity is lost, few want to say “We have a bit of a problem here, we are failing- what should we do?” And so ’we’ stick our heads into the sand like an ostrich and hope the whole thing will blow over. It simply is not going to, it really isn’t.

        On the issue of PH hiring non PH lawyers in international disputes, the only conclusion is PH don’t have such lawyers…..?

      • topolcats

        Well Bravo Mi Carina!
        Another well said, comments which reflects the truth!
        Its a real mystery as to why the Philippines is so dumbed down it does not want to improve itself……..having lived in Europe, Russia , USA, South and North America, Cuba, Asia Pacific, Myanmar Thailand etc.

        I cannot understand why self criticism seems to be lagging in the Ph gene? Nietzsche said, you can never claim intellect or be a philosopher if you are unable to criticize yourself first, your surroundings, your family and your country and he is absolutely right!

        I think myself it is the knowledge that the Filipino is the domestic helper slave of the world that gives the race a dangerous inferiority complex?

        The manifestation of this disorder?, the Philippines may be effected with the persecuted rat syndrome?

        That is a syndrome where persecuted rats act with extreme Barbaric traits towards its neighbour because of past belief in inferiority persecution?
        If that is going to be the case?…….the race will be almost exterminated by its hostile neighbours……..a guess but a good one?

        Duh…. most caucasians are actually dumb.

      • eigendik

        First of all, many universities in UK and USA, nowadays, prefer Asians because they are full -paying students, unlike many locals. Therefore, many Asians are able to get in as long as their wallets are qualified. This explains the proliferation of Asians in western universities.

        Second, it is unfortunate that the Philippines does not invest in education. This explains why we are failing in the rankings. One of the criteria is the quantity of research and publications of the different faculties. Since, the lab equipment are inadequate, what can we expect? But this should not be interpreted that our professors are less brilliant that their foreign counterparts. It is just that there is a big difference in opportunities – in their favour.

        As for your comment about the country being littered with BA’s… it is not for me to judge.

        In my profession as a …, I have met brilliant people and mediocre minds. I have met people who brag about their opportunity to have studied in a university elsewhere. But unfortunately for them, aside from that foreign diploma, arrogance and an annoying fake twang, there is nothing else they can show for it. Are they any better than the local graduates? … not from where I stand.

      Had the 5569 passed the bar then legal fees will be affordable. Since the rich and influential must be protected at all cost then 80 % of law students must flunk the test. It has nothing to do about knowledge. It is all about keeping the rich become richer.

    • $22369910

      you don’t even know your grammar and you criticise these people who made the effort to take an awfully hard test. seriously, “has no brains”?

      as usual, as it is common in our culture, a lot of people here comment without having any knowledge of how difficult legal education is- much more bar exams are-in this country.

      and to those dissing lawyers, yep there are lot of awful people out there but remember, there are brilliant and good filipino lawyers out there (ma’am di desierto for one) as well who do their jobs right and fought/fight for our liberties. whether it may be in litigation, or in the corporate field, the academe, or their respective advocacies, they not only do us creatures of the law proud but every single filipino for that matter with their excellence.

      the very same liberties that allow you morons to speak so recklessly of a matter of which you do not have any semblance of a clue. i’m just saying if we ever go back to the dark neanderthal days of martial law, keep in mind- these dumb buayas like pepe diokno, jovito salonga, justice sarmiento, edcel lagman- might just save your undeserving behinds.

      Exactly!! News groups should stop putting bar results frontpage. We should stop glorifying bar results. Do our country need more lawyers? Will more lawyers help our country progress? What we need are builders, industrialists, technologists, professionals that will help our country grow, build industries, entrepreneurs etc. News groups such as Inquirer should emphasize board results of engineering board exams, technology achievers, scientists. These news should be better front and center rather than bar results.

  • MNLFoodcritic

    And why is it when results of the bar exams are out, it’s splashed front
    page news? Do we really need more lawyers? Will having more lawyers help
    our country grow and progress economically? What news groups should do
    is to promote results of engineering board exams. Promote technology
    achievements. Showcase scientific work. These are areas that will truly
    help our country. We, as a country, really need to put our priorities in
    order. Let’s stop glorifying the legal profession. Let’s promote areas
    that will truly benefit our nation: engineers, scientists, technology
    professionals, entrepreneurs, industrialists, nation-builders. Not
    lawyers. There’s so many of them in our country.

  • Aisa Pangdan

    The Philippines NEED more engineers than lawyers to move this country to higher and better economic status. When Japan started to rehabilitate their country after the war, engineering was encouraged by their government by lowering tuition fee for incoming students and at the same time discouraged the Law Profession by jacking up tuition fees. They were right! And recently, every newly industrialized country followed them – South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, India and now China – encouraging more of their students to take engineering courses.

    • topolcats

      Good point Bravo!

    • ARIKUTIK

      In Philippines, an Engineer will have a hard time searching for job that some ends up as cell phone repair boy on the street. The others out of need to eat, ends up in call center. But lawyers will surely earn from his profession easily.

      A fact that proves > there are so many engineers in PH but only few licensed lawyer.

      • Billy Reyes

        that’s because our engrs. are not competitive, if you graduate egnr, just to repair cellphone there is something wrong with the system. In other countries if your cell phone is broken they don’t waste time to repair it, they throw it in the bin.

    • Billy Reyes

      I agree but we need to improve our science in the Philippines, our licensed engrs, are not competitive around the world, we need innovation of how our education structure works, remove those subjects that doesn’t work.
      I would say remove those singing national anthem every single day waste of time no benefits, religious classes, memorizing history of other countries you can teach yourself history when you grew up & start travelling.
      Give Science, Math, teach foreign languages to the very young kids. Why not teach Spanish again. Give those priorities.

    Only 949 get to be members of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines. But I bet that of the 5,343 who took the exams not less than 2,500 are already full-fledged members of the bars of the Philippines.

    Incidentally, inside a bar you can easily tell if some lawyers are around. Just listen to their talk and how they talk. It’s telling who the engineers are that is difficult. That is, because some could be priests. One should know why.
